Hello! We are starting a New Challenge this week...

We only have a few little rules and they are over there in the side bar ------->

Before we see what the Design Team have been up to, have you seen the latest Polkadoodles New Release?
Say hello to the Fabulous, super adorable and cutest new collection

Aren't they totally adorable.  You can check out the Polkadoodles Gallery for the latest

creations by the Design Team using this wonderful collection HERE!

And why not pop along to our fabulous POLKADOODLES FACEBOOK GROUP, there
is always lots of daily inspiration to see and to get those creative juices flowing.

Now let's see what wonderful inspiration the Design Team have for you this week....
The DT's twist on the challenge theme is to use A Design Sheet from one of the collections,
and if you want to join in with that theme then go for it :-)

Jacki - For my cards this week I was spoiled for choice I had already designed my first card using Sticks and Bones DS 2  Then our lovely Nikky goes and releases the ubber cute Horace and Boo so I decided to use one of these as well, well who can resist! Both cards were super easy to make For the sticks and Bones I used a paper and image with greeting and attached them to my card blank using some bones as embellies. For my other this was just using just a topper from DS 2 and then using an embellishment (fishbowl) to finish.

Ruth:  I've used one of the design sheets from Work and Play Vol 12 plus added some buttons and black card from my stash.  Really nice and easy to use plus I can get two cards plus lots of extra elements from one sheet!
Helen - Feeling a bit pretty and delicate for this challenge, so I chose to use one of the beautiful design sheets from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles collection for my project. I made a card with a little wrap around the front using one of the beautiful Elegant nest dies, so I have 2 photos to share with you the outside and the inside. You can find this beautiful sheet right here at the store http://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/digital-decoupage-design-sheets/?sort=newest&page=4 and the Elegant nest die right here http://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/elegant-nest-set-of-3-craft-cutting-dies/

Karon - I have used the delightful Helga Hippo Collection and one of the wonderful Design sheets from the collection (Design sheet 2-06 in the collection). This design sheet is also part of a Duo Design sheet download #9 if you only want to buy just a couple to make a card :-)  I have also used the Flower Flourish Die.  This card is just 4" by 4" and is to be part of a gift set.
Pauline - I decided to use a fun design sheet from the Work & Play 11 Collection to create my card, I printed the sheet twice so that I could add a decoupage layer and added some of the super papers and a sentiment from the collection.  There are two images, two sentiments and embellishments on each design sheet so I have enough left over to create another card.
Carol - so today I have made a super sweet card featuring Design Sheet 10 from the fabulous Horace and Boo collection.

Lisa - For my make I have used a design sheet from Work & Play 5 Festive Hollybobs Collection. I've teamed the elements with some patterned papers from the same collection and made a clean & simple Z fold Christmas card.

Lots of fabulous creations to inspire you....

The chipboard frame and dressmaker dummy are from my stash.


Ruth -  I've gone big and bold this week - I've made a shaped number card using my own templates and a paper from the Frederika Mini CD Collection plus two wooden skewers  and I've made the bunting myself plus added some star die cuts.


Helen - So the DT are making anything but a square card. Now I know our Nikki has some fabby templates so I went to Lavender Tea and hey presto there was a beautiful flowerpot and I had to do some colouring to so what better that a Darling Buds this little beauty is crocus.

I teamed her up with papers from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Springtime Download Bundle.  The sentiment and flowers are also from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Springtime Download Bundle.


Carol - For my DT inspiration this week, I have made a cute Easter basket featuring Helga and filled it with delicious goodies.


CreativEle - My love for Helga Collection brings me for this new project to create a card box.

Now let's see what wonderful inspiration the Design Team have for you this week.
The DT's twist on the challenge theme is Anything but a Square Card
and if you want to join in with that theme then go for it :-)

TinaThis time I made an Explosion Box and used the "Stick & Bones - Big Bundle".
Each area is 4 x 4 inch and the inhabitants I have colored with Polychromos. Much more photos and details you find on my Blog.


























Scatty Jan - For my project this week I have made a saloon milk carton - I cut this on my portrait and was a lot of fun decorating up - I used the lovely images from Work & Play 3, that I coloured up using Graph'It Markers, You can also purchase the images seperately Cowboy as a digi image, also as a  clear stamp, and Cowgirl as a digi stamp - Lots more photo's on my blog.


Bev here with a cute 3D Birdhouse using Twiggy & Toots. I initially chose 7 printed 3 separate backing papers onto 300gsm card then turned them over and printed the templates onto the rear then simply cut them out and constructed the project and just for a little decoration I made some roses using the Flowers 1 Die set and added them to the roof.



Lou - I have used one of the design sheets from Winnie in Wonderland collection to create a circle rocker/stepper card. The only other embellishment added is a small piece of black lace ...




Michelle  - I have made a Twist and Pop Card and I have used Winnie In Wonderland Big Kahuna Bundle to make it. This was a lot of fun to make you can find the Video I used to make it on my blog.




AnjieI have used left over bits of design sheet 1 from the ever so cute Sticks and Bone collection. I used the other bits for a make a few weeks ago. This is why it's always worth while saving the bits that are left over. I've placed the image and all the embellies on to 3D foam to make them pop. I've shaped and layered the flowers and added to the edge of the card.


Lots of fabulous creations to inspire you.
